A search warrant shows police believe evidence inside suspect Gerald Jackson's Chevy Impala will help further link Jackson to the crime. Police believe they will find the victim's property and the murder weapon inside the car. According to the search warrant, one of the female victims identified Jackson by a Facebook picture.

"Our investigators do believe that there is another person out there who is involved in this crime," Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow of the Oklahoma City police said. "We don't have an identity. We don't have a name on that person."

Neighbors say they would commonly see suspicious activity at the home but would not give details. No one in the neighborhood would individually go on the record by name.
